Used for the ultimate smile makeover, veneers transform crooked, stained, damaged or badly worn teeth into a brand new, straight, white smile.
Veneers are thin laminates, or shells, of tooth-coloured material – either porcelain, ceramic or composite bonding material. The dental veneers are fitted to the front surface of teeth to improve appearance.
When are dental veneers appropriate?
- Stained teeth
- Damaged teeth
- Minor gaps between the teeth where orthodontics is not necessary
Why have a Veneer as opposed to a Crown?
Veneers are a less invasive form of treatment than a crown and can be used if the underlying tooth is strong and healthy.
How long do Veneers last?
When cared for properly Veneers can last for many years. As healthy gums are essential to the success of Veneers, regular dental health checks are essential. If a Veneer is struck by a hard object they can fracture just like normal teeth
